20mm WWII – East Front (all day Sunday 09/03/08)


WWII was the unofficial theme of last weekend’s all day Sunday, with a couple of giant games taking place. Steve and Pete put on a lovely East Front 20mm game using their version of the Peter Guilder rules (see pictures below).

The Nashorns arrive. They are brand new for this game. (Combat debuts rarely go well at the Gladiators).

A KV8 approaches through a smoke screen. It was knocked out shortly afterwards, adding it’s own smoke to the screen.

A PE2 overflies the German position in search of a target. The Pz IV seen below won’t do as it already knocked out.

The second giant game was a FoW 15mm game (5000pts per side) set in Tunisia. With the US and British 8th Armies attempting to join up. I’ve no pictures of this game yet, but lots were taken, so hopefully I can add some later.
